You still return to Cusco on the same day, but in the afternoon instead of in the morning. In about 10% of the cases we fly, people have to wait an extra night at the Boca Manu airport, to return to Cusco the morning of the next day. The extra costs occasioned in the rainforest by a non-flight situation are paid by Pantiacolla (extra overnights, meals etc.). Extra costs outside of the rainforest, such as hotel expenses in Cusco or elsewhere, changing airplane tickets etc., are not Pantiacolla´s responsibility.
